If Palin’s Not The Candidate/President Why Care Who Is?

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 11, 2011

If Sarah Palin chooses not to run for the GOP nomination, her decision either way being expected in the next few weeks, or if running does not receive it, what possible difference will it make who the nominee ends up being?

Taking it one step further, what real difference will there be if in January 2013 Barack Obama, or Rick Perry or Mitt Romney is sworn in as president?

 President Obama is re-elected with, as seems likely at this point in time, congress being in Republican hands, he will, effectively, be a lame duck president from day one. He wouldn’t be able to get any radical measures passes, just as now, and neither will his veto be able to be overturned. 

Conversely, if Perry, or Romney are elected, is their anything in their past performance as Governors which gives any indication they they would be transformational presidents?

The question, if posed about Mitt Romney is, frankly, laughable. Romney is presenting himself as a good, successful businessman and manager and thus the best choice for tough economic times. 

What is actually needed, which the real economic power brokers have, finally, decided to do, is not to have interventionists like Obama and the Bernanke of the last three years, a but minimalistic interventionist who will stand aside, and let the normal healing process of the business cycle, the market, do its job unimpeded. The age of Solyndra-ism has passed.

If an off the shelf Republican like Perry or Romney is elected, not only does the political real world of “tacking to the center” when elected come, sadly, in to play once again, but it will ensure that no progressive conservatism will eventuate. If the Dem’s retain the senate, or the GOP wins it without a filibuster proof majority (which is likely) then the chance of a genuine conservative reconstruction is next to zero.

If Palin were to win the presidency, then there is every chance for a genuinely transformational administration. Partly based on her record of economic management and achievement, partly based on her ability to reach across the aisle. Partly because  of her clearly set out attack on the establishment power structure “crony capitalism”. This attack morally binds her to not tack away from the ethical structure she has laid out.

Certainly, congressional strictures which would affect an Obama or a different GOP president would be in place as they are now. However, with Palin elected there would be a moral imperative stopping, at least initially, the Democrats from impeding her legislative program.

If Palin were elected, the message to congress would have been strikingly clear-change was desired. In contrast to a Romney or Perry, the election of Palin would mean, without doubt, that America was in the mood for significant change. 

Any political party that was seen to be obstructive to that mood, purely for partisan reasons, especially members of a party that was recently rejected at the polls would suffer ignominious defeat at the ensuing mid-terms.

A Palin administration would be in a strong position to deliver a program that included:

A large, permanent reduction in government

Progress towards reducing the internal and external deficits

Lower taxes

Reducing unemployment

An attack on the massive regulatory burden inhibiting business growth

Keeping a strong military and a Kennedy-esque commitment to friend and foe alike

Developing America’s energy resources helping to reduce foreign dependence.

Increasing the emphasis on states rights, especially in the matter of people being able to choose the moral and ethical standards for their communities.


But perhaps transcending the economic and social reconstruction, would be the re-igniting of the positive American spirit which has been so harshly dimmed over the past eight years. That such a re-igniting could occur if President Obama managed to squeak through to a second term, or under a President Romney or President Perry is difficult to imagine.

Under a spirited President Palin, those of us who remember the Kennedy years, with all their spark and bright promise, can envisage a new Camelot. We will shed tears of joy at having lived long enough to see it ushered in once again, after all these years.

  1. Thank you for some common sense logical choices in a sea of queasiness that scares me to death. We are praying Sarah Palin will soon enter and alleviate our fears. May God bless her choice. And may He bless America as we fight forward. Thanks for listening.

  2. Sarah Palin is not a progressive conservative, and we do not want a progressive conservative. Sarah is a conservative conservative which is a totally different type of creature. Their will be great movement under a conservative conservative but do not mistake that movement as progressive. For example, socialized welfare programs are debatable issues under the progressive canopy, as can be homosexual marriage, whilst the idea that welfare should be local, not fedeeral, and that marriage never constitutes two people of the same sex is strictly conservative.

    In Canada the conservative party is actually called the PC party, the progressive conservatives, but some seem to me to be shying very much away from that title today and they understand better what the “progressive” part can entail.

  3. Okay, I buy it — totally: we need Sarah Palin for 2012! But we need her to buy it, and run so we can actually have Sarah Palin in 2012! Run Sarah Run! Your country needs you! We need you! Please put us out of our misery — declare, run, and win fro 2012!

    I really like your insight and have passed it on to others. But as much as I do not want to vote for anybody but Sarah, Standing4liberty is absolutely right about the danger of more radical executive orders. Even worse is the addition of more leftist justices on the Supreme Court, and the complete abandonment of Israel.

    After the regular election, there will be very few democrat senators and house to worry about. obama will not be re-elected, regardless.

  6. The difference with Obama being re-elected is is penchant for destroying out liberty with Communist Executive Orders.
